The course is packed full of ideas for using small mat equipment to create lively, varied and challenging classes that will really engage your participants.
You’ll learn how to use equipment to isolate and intensify the work of core muscles, and to improve exercise execution by enhancing kinesthetic awareness and understanding.
Written by a team of our expert tutors and including a comprehensive manual to refer to, this workshop is hands-on, experiential and fun! You will learn the skills to teach Pilates-based exercises using half-foam rollers, bands/tubing, stability balls, and small softballs. You will also look at exercise variations using the full foam roller, the weighted ball and the Pilates ring.
This is a 1-day practical workshop.
Discover new variations and creative sequences whilst using small equipment including the Pilates ring, small ball, weighted balls, bands and foam rollers. The use of small equipment will engage class participants and add a new dimension to your service offer.
Generate new opportunities for progressions, adaptations and variations to the Pilates exercises, using equipment to change the focus of the movement.
Continue to explore adaptations from the original Pilates method, using small equipment to aid kinaesthetic awareness, performance and understanding of the Pilates technique.
Keep your classes energised, challenging and different by including small equipment in your classes, building upon your Pilates portfolio.

Future Fit training programme was very straight forward, but I felt I was missing out by not having any hands-on experience with an actual coach/tutor. A lot of my marks were lower than they could have been due to not fully understanding the subject or item as well as I should, but not having a quick reference point available to verify anything was a drawback.

The Pilates Matwork course was detailed, practical and challenging. The course content was delivered in a variety of ways i.e. online learning and face-to-face suiting learning styles. Scott and his team were very helpful at the end of the phone/online. I was lucky enough to walk straight into a Pilates teaching job as soon as I qualified. Thank-you FutureFit!

After a lot of searching for a Training provider that offered both flexible training and credible and great teaching, I came across Future Fit. I am so glad that I decided to go with them! I have learnt an amazing amount through the online platform and face-to-face workshops and now I feel really confident going out to work with clients with a solid scientific background to my knowledge. I have also met some fantastic people through the courses and have built an amazing network of friends and contacts which is a great support as I now work for myself. If you want to be a fantastic PT then I would highly recommend doing your training with Future Fit.
